Peanut Butter Pretzel Chocolate Granola Bars

Some of the greatest recipes I have ever made are from ward cookbooks (and maybe a few flops have come from there as well :)  There are some wonderful family recipes shared in these books, and I am very thankful these folks that share are willing to do so!  These are seriously easy...under 10 minutes to make, and I definitely prefer them over the store bought variety.  The boys gobbled these up quick, and we quickly made the second variety shared in my cookbook for a s'mores granola bar (which I'll post another day)!!

Peanut Butter Pretzel Chocolate Granola Bars

1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. honey
1/2 c. peanut butter
2 tsp. vanilla
4 c. old fashioned oats
1 c. rice krispies
1-1/2 c. chopped pretzels
1/2 c. mini chocolate chips

In a large bowl, combine oats, rice krispies, and pretzels.  Sed aside.  Mix butter, sugar, and honey in a saucepan and bring to a boil.  Boil 2 minutes.  Stir in peanut butter and vanilla.  Add oatmeal mixture.  Stir well and then press into a 9x13 pan.  Sprinkle with mini chocolate chips and firmly press down.  Let cool and cut into bars.  Wrap individually in plastic wrap and place in gallon size ziploc bag to store.  Yield: about 24.
